Highland can claim victory for O'Meara on return to favourite track

Edward Whitaker (
1 of 1

Newmarket:Anthony Burke

Dolcissimo(6.50 Chelmsford, nap)

Although yet to get his head in front, he arguably brings the best figures to the table. If he can reproduce his best form here he will be hard to beat from what looks a perfect pitch on the rails.

North: Colin Russell

Awake My Soul(4.05 Ripon, nap)

Course-and-distance winner who was below his best at Newmarket last time. On a fair mark now and with the ground in his favour is fancied to bounce back.

Lambourn: James Burn

Prince Of Rome(4.50 Chelmsford, nap)

Consistent colt has posted three solid efforts at novice level and must beunder serious consideration for his nursery debut.

Others to follow
Chelmsford 6.20 Mankind, 6.50 Lush Life.
Epsom 2.10 Capla Gilda, 2.45 Nina Petrovna, 3.50 Amanto, 4.55 Fresh Terms.
Stratford 6.40 Salto Chisco, 7.10 Regulation.

West Country: Andrew King

Guerrilla Tactics(6.10 Stratford, nap)

Runner-up at Stratford last time and fancied to go one better in a race that should be run at a strong gallop.

Others to follow
3.15 Handytalk.
Stratford 5.40 Polished Rock, 7.10 Kohuma.

Racing Post Ratings: Simon Turner

Highland Acclaim(3.15 Epsom, nap)

Boasts a fine record over course and distance and fairly handicapped on the best of this year's form. Should go close.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Desert Frost(3.15 Epsom)

Has hit the woodwork in all five outings this season but has improved his speed rating on each occasion and is overdue a change of fortune.

Longshot:Simon Giles

Rosy Ryan(4.35 Ripon)

Won the race last year off a 4lb higher mark and clearly goes well at the track. A promising 3lb claimer is booked and although disappointing this term could find some form back at Ripon.

Ireland:Tony O'Hehir

So Lonely(8.00 Ballinrobe)

Runner-up on four of her six appearances in bumpers, the Charles O'Brien-trained four-year-old can come good here having appeared a shade unlucky on her most recent start in a maiden hurdle at Sligo where she lost out by a short head.
